In February Suited for Success worked together with Birmingham youth charity Sport 4 Life on a special project dressing a group of five young men (18 – 25 year olds) ready for their mock interviews with a corporate business in Birmingham City Centre.
The group were on a 5 week employability and personal development programme for 16-25 year olds who are not in education, employment, or training (NEET).
Equipping young people ready for work
The Sport 4 Life programme focuses on developing young people’s employability and key life skills so they are ready for the job market through a variety of personal development activities. The programme is also designed to equip NEET young people with a combination of soft skills as well technical skills such as CV writing, job interviewing, job searching and gaining accredited qualifications.
The young group had a great time being dressed ready for their mock interviews and commented on how smart each other looked as each transformation was revealed.
Based only a stones throw away, Suited for Success will be working together with Sports 4 Life on more special projects in the future.
